The total of 1,200 PCB design seats to be used over the next four years is worth an estimated £9.5million, accordi ng to NMiTE, a project to create an engineering university in Hereford in the west of England.
Pulsonix is a division of WestDev Ltd. (Tewkesbury, England).
"Our software is particularly designed to enable engineers to combine advanced electronic components into items they create, for instance for incorporating sensors, Internet of Things components and enabling remote and AI control," said Bob Williams, co-founder and managing director of Pulsonix and WestDev.
"Part of our distinctive approach is that students will be learning through working on real-life commercial projects for employers, and this will enable them to do this using the same Pulsonix software used by hundreds of leading engineering businesses," said Toby Kinnaird, NMiTE's Engineer in Residence.
By 2020 it is expected that at least 150 students will be based at a purpose-built NMiTE campus in Hereford with a plan to educate more than 5,000 engineering students by 2032.
Williams the co-founder of WestDev ran the Cadstar product group and was worldwide distribution channel manager for Zuken between 1984 and 1997 the point at which WestDev was formed. Pulsonix was founded in 2001.
Cadstar became a Zuken product with the acquisition of original developer Racal-Redac Ltd. in September 1994. Cadstar is now developed at Zuken's technology center in north Bristol.
